THIRDS 2 Year Anniversary Celebration Event!!

THIRDSAnnBlogBanner

Hello all! Thank you so much for joining me as we celebrate the THIRDS 2 Year Anniversary!! Woot! It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since Dexter J. Daley and the Destructive Delta crew were unleashed upon the world. I often get asked if while I was writing Hell & High Water I had any idea of what the THIRDS would turn into. That would be a big nope. I submitted Rack & Ruin, book 3, to my publisher before Hell & High Water was even released. I was kinda freakin’ out. I had written three books in this new series, different to anything I’d done before, and the first book hadn’t even been released. My main thought at the time was “please don’t let this tank”. Seriously.

Two years later and I still can’t believe it. I am continuously amazed and blown away by all the love shown to these fellas and the series. After Hell & High Water, the THIRDS Nerds came onto the scene. We are now 686 members strong and still growing. There’s been THIRDS inspired fan art, fan playlists, jewelry, SIMS characters, cakes, and all kinds of awesomeness from amazing readers.

This week Smoke & Mirrors, book 7 is released. It’s been an incredible adventure, but it’s not over just yet. With Smoke & Mirrors ending the way it does, I’ve had folks asking me if this is the end of the THIRDS. Definitely not. Events were planned from the beginning to take the series in a specific direction, the question was what I’d do when we reached the end, because there would have to be an end. By mid-series I would know whether the main series would be it, or of I’d continue on to the next THIRDS adventure. It would all depend on how much I was enjoying writing the THIRDS and if readers were still enjoying reading it. By the time I wrote Against the Grain, I knew I wasn’t ready to give up writing Dex and Sloane just yet.

Right now I’m working on Seb and Hudson’s book, followed by book 9, the last Dex and Sloane book in the MAIN series. So what’s coming next? I’m super excited about what’s coming next year!! The main series may be coming to an end, but the adventure, comedy, and romance is far from done. We’re kicking things up a notch, and don’t worry, our Destructive Delta crew will still be around. Everything will be revealed in Smoke & Mirrors, the turning point in the THIRDS world, and in Dex and Sloane’s lives. There is so much planned! I can't wait to share it all with you!

How about a little teaser?

TIN-Dex-and-SloaneBP

I know change can be a scary thing, especially when you love the characters, but you'll have to trust me. In 2017, things about to get real.The time has come to put all that training--and then some--to use. Dex and Sloane are going to be kicking some serious butt, and although the new series will belong solely to Dex and Sloane, Destructive Delta will still play an important role. They are a family after all. We may not see them as much as we do now, but they're not going away. Every badass operative needs to have a team at their back, and no team can make it rain fire and wrath like Destructive Delta. We're also going to be introduced to some new key players, and be seeing a lot more of Austen and Wolf. The side stories are still happening. Austen and Zach, Bradley and Lou etc. I'll be announcing the series name at a later date so folks have time to read Smoke & Mirrors. It all starts to make more sense there. I'll let Dex tell you how he feels about this.

Either way, I hope you're as excited as I am. Is the THIRDS world ready for a lethally trained Dex? We'll soon find out. It's like an exciting new TV series in your brain, with lots of action, explosions, kicking-butt, sexy-times, drama, angst, shenanigans, and yes, the tagline remains Action. Comedy. Romance. And that One Weird Guy. Only this time the weird guy's a little more sharply dressed. ;)

How about we give away some goodies!!

Dexter J. Daley's Birthday Bash!

Dexs Bday Bash

Hey, everyone! Dexter J. Daley here. Welcome to my super-awesome-gummy-bear-sweetness, Cheesy-Doodle-crunchiness, birthday-bash-bonanza! We have all the unhealthy snacks and yummy treats you could want. I won't tell Sloane if you won't. Where's Sloane? Getting ready for a different kind of birthday party, if you know what I mean. *wink wink* Oh, you don't know what I mean? Sexy times, man. Sexy times. No you're not invited. Pervs. Me? I am not a perv. Oh my God, the van incident was not my fault. One time. It was one time and I'm branded a perv for life.

All right, let's crank up the music and get this party started. Sing along. I know you want to. Don't act like you don't love this. What's that? Def Leppard? No, you may not play Pour Some Sugar on Me. Get your head out of the gutter. That song is for me and my sexy grumpy pants.

That animated guy dancing in the video, that's what Ash dances like. Ha! Kidding. Don't tell him I said that. But serious, how much would you pay to see Ash dance like that? I wouldn't go as far as saying I'd sell my precious Challenger, but I'd be temped. So, obviously I'm a fan of the eighties. Obsessed? Hahaha. Shut your mouth. Ha! Kidding. But seriously, I'm not obsessed. I don't wear like legwarmers under my uniform or a sweatband under my tactical helmet. There is physical photographic evidence of Sloane and Ash in their teenage years, and I've made it my life's mission to find these images.

Back to the party! Now, normally I have a pre-birthday-party party because who just celebrates their birthday on one day? Okay, well, I like to get a head start. Some cake, karaoke, good food, good company, and I guess Ash too. I've always had pre-birthday-party parties. Ever since I was a kid. Usually we'd have sleepovers at home. Tony would make cakes and cookies, and it was BYOC (bring your own candy) which we'd hide in our pillows until my dad went to bed and we were all pretending we were asleep. Then we'd wake up and eat candy until we were sick. I know what you're thinking, "but you dad's an agent, how did you get away with it?". Clearly you underestimate the deceptive powers of an eleven year old.

Poor Cael. He'd be so wired on candy that he'd end up falling asleep in weird places, like in the kitchen sink after managing to climb up there, in the bathtub, under dad's bed, the laundry basket. Then dad would find him and Cael would have a sugar hangover, whimpering and needing to be carried everywhere because his tummy was ready to "esplode". He'd sleep the rest of the day and I'd get grounded for a day but it was totally worth it! There was the one birthday where we converted the stairs into a Slip N' Slide. Yeah, not my brightest idea. In my defense, I put pillows at the end so no one would end up flying into a wall. There was the tiny detail about where the water was going to go. The answer to that? The basement, and um, dad's office. Yeah, he took over party planning after that.

I'm going to lay a little birthday party knowledge on  you. Here are a few tips on what not to do at your birthday party:

  1. Do not fill your Super Soaker with Kool Aid. Parents will not see the fun in this, even if it means shooting and getting shot at becomes tastier.
  2. Do not replace the candy from the piñata with gummy bears and then throw yourself under said piñata when the strings get pulled. This is not only a choking hazard, but will lead to a stampeding feeding frenzy. Again, parents will not appreciate their child being trampled for floor strewn gummy bears. The five second rule totally applies.
  3. Do not convince your cheetah Therian little brother to shift during your party and try to play tape the tail on the cheetah because not only will your little brother leave everyone eating his dust, he will throw a total hissy fit and steal your presents. There's no catching him so kiss that new action figure goodbye. It's his now. He will stash it away like a squirrel burying an acorn. Also, he eats even more in his cheetah Therian form so half your snacks are now his.
  4. Do not attempt to play Hide & Seek while said chirping little furball is in his Therian form. You will never win, which means you will always be it and it suuuuucks.
  5. Do not tell your dad you're inviting just a few friends to your pizza party and then get the art department to put up a banner at school. I'm still receiving pizza bills from Tony.

Okay, I spilled now it's your turn! What's your fondest birthday memory?

Weekly News & Updates

NWFBNewsandUpdates

Hello all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! This week's update brings some exciting news. As some of you may know, the THIRDS series is currently being translated into French, with Contre vents et marées (THIRDS t. 1) being released June 30th. I'm super happy to announce that The Auspicious Troubles of Love series is also currently being translated into French with Les Mésaventures Prometteuses de Chance (The Auspicious Troubles of Chance) coming soon! There's also talk of the THIRDS being translated into another language as well, but I'll share more on that as soon I have more solid info.

Along with translations, the North Pole City Tales series has been contracted for audiobook! The Heart of Frost and Vixen's Valor will be released on audio late this fall! Mending Noel is already available, and if all goes according to schedule, Loving Blitz should be out in eBook format in December.

I've had a few folks ask if Against the Grain will be released on audio. I do believe it will be, but I won't know for sure until the eBook is released. DSP contracts audiobook on or after book release. With the THIRDS I usually hear from them about audiobooks a few days after release. I'll definitely share more on that once I have more information.

The Against the Grain Blog Tour starts Aug 3rd and there will be an awesome giveaway that includes swag themed to the book. Expect some fun geeky stuff.

On July 20th the fabulous Joyfully Jay is hosting the exclusive cover reveal for my contemporary romantic comedy novella Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts. The pre-order will also be available on July 20th, and along with the cover reveal there will be a giveaway and exclusive excerpt. Release day is Aug 19th. There will also be a blog tour starting Aug 19th. More info on that soon.

For anyone attending Rainbow Con in Tampa, I'll be there just hanging out and checking out the events on Friday, July 17th through Saturday, July 18th, so if you fancy saying hello, asking about your favorite book or series, or just chatting, come find me. :D

I'll also be attending GRL in San Diego, CA in October 2015 as a Featured Author, and Coastal Magic Convention in Daytona Beach, FL in Feb 2016 as a Featured Author, so stay tuned for info on panels and events as we get closer. I'll also be attending RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas 2016. More on that soon!

I think that's it for this week. Stay tuned to the blog for more on upcoming releases, up dates, events, and more!
